The Center for IT & Analytics (CITA) was created in 2000 with the mission to teach students and develop faculty in the principles and practices of the related disciplines of Information Systems & Information Technology. CITA is made up of an executive advisory board of Information Technology leaders from the Northeast Ohio region.

CITA accomplishes its mission by

  • Providing scholarships to students majoring in Information Systems
